Watch The New Beach House Video For “Drunk In LA” - Directed by Sonic Boom - from ‘7’ Their Acclaimed New Album

Beach House also shares “Black Car (Sonic Boom Remix)”.

7 is one of the Best Albums of 2018 (So Far): Stereogum(#1), Rolling StoneNPR, Entertainment WeeklyBillboard.

“Best New Music” (8.9/10) - Pitchfork
“The new Beach House album is their best yet” - Vulture

Beach House’s “Drunk In LA” is one of the standouts from 7, the group’s acclaimed new album for 2018. And now the song has a new, kaleidoscopic video directed by album co-producer Sonic Boom. 

Upon the album’s release, Stereogum included the track in its “5 Best Songs of the Week,” and had this to say: “The immediate standout from Beach House’s magnificent 7 is “Drunk In LA,” a showstopper made stronger by everything else around it. The stuttering opening beat that opens the song blossoms into one of the duo’s most staggering songs yet.” 

Beach House has also delivered a new Sonic Boom remix of “Black Car” [listen here] and had this to say about both the rework, and the “Drunk In LA” video:
 
7 was co-produced by Sonic Boom aka Peter Kember. We had a lot of fun with him throughout the process, and he helped us remember that any idea is welcome in a recording environment (he played a drill on “Lemon Glow”). 
 
“While mixing the record with Alan Moulder in London, we were out having dinner and Pete mentioned an idea for a video where the viewer is always looking up from the ground. This became the “Drunk in LA” video. When he sent it to us, we complimented and commented on the trippy, dreamlike nature of the video and he wrote that it was essentially just a day in his life.
 
“We have never had a remix, but we thought it would be cool if Pete did one. We really like the one he did for “Black Car,” because it feels like a different song, focused largely on voice and arpeggio. It feels like a poem this way, and the minimal treatment highlights the lonesome quality of the song. Hope you enjoy! Much Love.”

What “The People” are saying about Beach House 7:

“A beguiling new pop gloss…The effect is as transcendent as ever.” - NY Times
 
“Beach House remain masters of the indefinable and their seventh album is their heaviest and most immersive-sounding of their career.” [Best New Music, 8.9/10] - Pitchfork
 
“These are big songs, full of wonder, and Beach House know it. Seven albums in, they’re at the start of something new.” [****] - Rolling Stone
 
“…The sounds are glorious” [****] - The Guardian
 
“One of the year’s best…” - The FADER
 
“Their boldest album to date…”  - Stereogum
 
“Beach House’s consistent brilliance is truly remarkable…” [8/10] - Exclaim!
 
“…Their most adventurous record yet.”  [Grade: B+] - Consequence of Sound
 
“Even tracks enveloped in Beach House’s signature pink haze are injected with a palpable jolt. This is uncharted territory, from the trap-like chain that rattles through lead single “Lemon Glow” or the grandiose swagger of acid rock anthem “Drunk In L.A…” - Billboard
 
“A stunning effort in a career full of them.” - Uproxx
 
“7 is massive and intimate, dense yet understandable, fresh yet classic.” [Grade: A] - Pretty Much Amazing

“It’s a nuanced progression and, in some ways, a diversion from Beach House’s already magnificent oeuvre, brilliant in how much farther it finds Beach House willing to go.” [Album of the Week] - Treble

“Black Car” Is The Latest Track From 7, The Acclaimed Forthcoming Album by Beach House

The band will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live May 16th.

Beach House have shared “Black Car,” a captivating new song from 7 their highly anticipated new album. The dark, atmospheric track rides an undulating bass line along a building, arrhythmic pulse of a drum beat.
 
7 is already earning Beach House some of the best reviews of the band’s career. Stereogum says of the album, “There are great bands that reinvent themselves with each new album, others that hit a sweet spot and stick with what works, and then there’s Beach House. Over their decade-plus career, some might argue that the Baltimore-based band has largely adhered to a formula, but with 7 — their excellent seventh album— it’s clear that the duo has been playing the long game.”  Pitchfork offers this, “The record is one of rebirth, and easily the Baltimore duo’s most apparent sonic departure since 2012’s Bloom.” And The FADER raves, “The result is a weird and thrilling record that not only stands as one of the year’s best, but suggests that when it comes to pushing the limits of what the “Beach House sound” can be, Scally and Legrand are just getting started.”

Beach House has also scheduled a late night TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, May 16th. And the band will perform a live in-studio session on KCRW in Los Angeles on May 15th.

Beach House To Release ‘7’, The Group’s 7th Album, Worldwide On May 11th, 2018. Now Experience The Transcendent New Track, “Dive”

Headlining worldwide tour dates: April 30th-October 20th, 2018

Cry those tears of joy, because Beach House will release 7, the group’s 7th full-length record, on CD/LP/CS/DL May 11th, 2018. The new Beach House album will be available worldwide on Sub Pop, except in Europe and Australia/New Zealand, where it will be released by Bella Union and Mistletone.

7 features standouts including the Valentine’s Day ‘18 single “Lemon Glow”, along with “Black Car,” “Drunk In LA,” “Dark Spring,” and today, their latest offering, the transcendent “Dive”. All of the songs on 7 began in Beach House’s home studio in Baltimore, and were finished at Carriage House in Stamford, CT and Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Alan Moulder.

Beach House (Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand) released B-sides and Rarities in 2017, which served as a proverbial “cleaning out the closet” to pave way for a new creative process.  Their approach in the creation of 7 was rebirth and rejuvenation.  Scally and Legrand used to limit themselves to what they thought they could perform live, but this time that limitation was ignored.  Also, instead of one long studio session, Beach House recorded when inspired by batches of songs, which resulted in five mini-sessions over the course of eleven months.
 
Unlike the last four albums, 7 didn’t have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection.  The band’s trusted live drummer from 2016 to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the center of a lot of these songs.



7 is available for preorder now from Sub PopBella Union (Europe), and Mistletone (Australia / New Zealand). Pre-orders of the LP through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers in North America will receive the limited Loser Edition on opaque yellow vinyl.
